JUST RM10 for a pair of jeans and RM5 for a shirt. Such are the prices found in second-hand clothes or bundle shops, an industry term for outlets that sell garments discarded by its wearers and then salvaged for resale. An industry once thought to be negligible at one point because of the belief it only caters to consumers from lower income brackets, bundle shops have crept up the commercial ladder.

Old-timer Sharin Darus, 51, of Sharin Bundle, started at 18 in Chow Kit and says the bundle market is now a multi-million ringgit business.
